Responsibility of the Transferee and the Transferor Employer in the Transfer of Workplace
The European Union Directive No. 2001/23 regulates the legal consequences of termination due to the transfer in the event of the transfer of a workplace in terms of labor receivables arising before the transfer. The provision regulating the continuation of the existing employment contracts of the employees with the new employer in the event of the transfer of the workplace or a part of it, which is based on this Directive, is included in Article 6 of the Labor Law No. 4857. The relevant regulations impose joint and several liability on the transferor and transferee employers, which in practice leads to conflicts between employers.
